Summary: I purchased these speakers one year and ten days ago. I was extremely pleased with the performance of the speakers while they were operational. A few days ago, I relocated the computer & speakers from one room to another. After the move was complete, the speakers ceased to work. I received no sound from them at all. I double, triple and quadruple checked all of the connections and cables. Nothing worked.
Summary: I have Altec lansing's 45.2 speaker set. This set is old and "outdated". However, I bought the Razer Mako system, and DID NOT hear anything spectacular .Even when I added the Baracuda sound card made by razer, still nothing impressive to me. The Altech lansing speakers you actually hear every little sound in distance and up close.Razer Mako you DO NOT . At time I bought the Altech lansing system I paid only 80 dollars for the system. Razer mako nearly 300.00 !!
Summary: I've just replace my old sound system with this Razer Mako Speakers for use with my home computer. Usually I try to keep the sound volume down not to disturb my neighbors. With my old system, I had difficulties adjusting the low and the high frequencies (bass and treble sounds) to the same level as the mid tones. As a result, and against my better judgement, I ended up increasing the sound volume.
Summary: Superb sound quality! I expected a little more volume as my 4 year old Logitech 5.1's are much louder (rated 200 watts). However, the volume is more than adequate for a typical room. I found digital audio out (through HDMI) gave the crispest sound and involved the sub-woofer more than the analog outputs did. This could be due to the Realtek and windows audio profiles (I did experiment a lot). It would've been great if a SPDIF input would have been provided.
Summary: Had these for about a month now, got them to replace a 75W system from ~5 years back, very impressed by the Razer Mako. I chose these over some other, more powerful speaker systems and still other, cheaper ones, because I was concerned about the sound quality over the raw power that the system could output. My audiophile friend also agrees with me regarding the quality of the sound. The bass is full without being overpowering, good midrange, crisp highs.
Summary: I haven't had this system long, but wow, I am super happy so far. I have listened to movies and music with the system, but have not tried out any games yet. Very happy with the sound, very detailed - and room filling. I won't go into to much detail, because I haven't had the system long enough .. but it seems/looks very high quality. The circle touch pad/remote/volume/bass/etc control is awesome, very nicely weighted as well.
Summary: I am going to make this review as simple as possible. If you can appreciate $12 dinners in Vegas and a $300+ dinner at the French Laundry, these speakers are for you... at the right settings, these speakers will amaze you (at retail price this purchase may be a bit iffy, but at this price its more than justified).
Summary: Sound quality is excellent! I could not be happier with this system. After spending much time reading mixed reviews I decided to give them a try and I'm glad I did. If you are interested in true sound quality, you can't go wrong with this system. Stop hesitating and buy it already!
Summary: My review is broken into three parts. Quick Take, A Bit More, and a Detailed Rant. I just want those who are considering this computer speaker system to get the level of detail that meets their needs. Quick Take This computer speaker system is very good. One of the best, if not the best, in its price range. It is very comparable to the Bose Companion 5 yet much less expensive. The control pad works very well. The Razer Mako is a very stylish system.
